Draft Genome Sequence of the Pathogenic Fungus Scedosporium apiospermum

Genome Announc. 2014 Oct 2;2(5):e00988-14. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00988-14.


The first genome of one species of the Scedosporium apiospermum complex, responsible for localized to severe disseminated infections according to the immune status of the host, will contribute to a better understanding of the pathogenicity of these fungi and also to the discovery of the mechanisms underlying their low susceptibility to current antifungals.
